Sling TV channel list 2020: What channels are on Sling TV?

These days, there are a variety of ways to watch live TV. You no longer need cable TV in order to keep up with your favorite TV shows, news, sports and more. It’s a great time to be a cord-cutter, as more and more services offer alternatives to cable TV. One of the biggest players in the online streaming industry is Sling TV. Read on for the complete Sling TV channel list.

Sling TV is the most popular of the live streaming services, and for good reason: it’s affordable, easy to use, and offers an excellent channel selection. Which leads us to this guide – just how does the Sling TV channel list stack up against the competition? What channels are on Sling TV in 2020, and which does it not offer? Find out in the guide below, updated every time Sling adds or drops a channel!

What is Sling TV?

First and foremost, let’s start with the basics. What is Sling TV, anyways?

Simply put, its a full-fledged cable TV alternative that functions over the internet. It offers you anywhere from 25 to 100+ channels, depending on the package you choose, all of which can be watched live. You can also record shows using a built-in DVR. It works over the internet, meaning you don’t need cable or satellite TV to use it, and you can watch on most devices. Use your streaming player, such as a Roku or Apple TV, or watch on-the-go on your laptop, tablet or smartphone.

The Sling TV Blue and Orange plans are currently $20 per month as Sling TV is offering a special price (normally the two packages are $30/mo each), and there is a lot of flexibility in what Sling TV channels you want to subscribe to. There are several different Sling TV packages, which we’ll go over in detail in the guide below. You can also check out our Sling TV review for more general information about the service.

The Sling TV channels list is quite extensive, although it’s important to note that the channels you get will depend on the plan you choose. The channels on Sling TV are broken up into 2 basic packages, with the option to add on additional packages for more selection. Take a look at the Sling TV packages breakdown in the section below.

Channels in the Sling Blue package

Sling Blue channel list includes: 45+ channels for $30 per month. There is a 7-day free trial available.

  • A&E
  • AMC
  • AXS TV
  • BBC America
  • BET
  • Bloomberg Television
  • Bravo
  • Cartoon Network
  • Cheddar Business
  • Cheddar News
  • CNN
  • Comedy Central
  • Comet
  • Discovery Channel
  • E!
  • EPIX Drive-In

Channels in the Sling Orange package

Sling Orange channel list includes: 30+ channels for $30 per month. There is a 7-day free trial available.

Channels in the Sling Orange + Blue package

Sling Orange + Blue channel list includes: 50+ channels for $45 per month. There is a 7-day free trial available. This package offers all of the channels from both Sling Orange and Sling Blue. See the above two sections for the full list.

Expanding Your Sling TV Channels List

The three Sling TV plans listed above are the base packages. You’ll need to choose one of those packages to start with. From there, you can expand your Sling TV channel list, if desired, by subscribing to add-on packages. This allows for a customization-friendly Sling TV channel lineup, and is one of the most valuable offerings of this service.

Most of the Sling TV add-ons add an additional 5-15+ channels, and most cost an extra $5 per month. Note that these must be added on to an existing base package (meaning, you can’t subscribe to only an add-on without first having Sling Orange, Sling Blue or Sling Orange + Blue. See the breakdown of Sling TV add-on packages below.

Sling TV Add-Ons

These add-on packages allow you to expand the Sling TV channel list to your liking. At $5-$10 each, they provide a very flexible and affordable way to customize your Sling TV experience. Note that these add-ons vary in channel selection, based on which base package you have. So if you choose Sling Blue, you’ll see slightly different add-on package options than you would with Sling Orange.

The Sling TV extras include:

Sports Extra – $10 per month

Keep up with your favorite teams with a vast selection of live sports channels. The Blue and Orange versions have slightly different channel lists, but both Sports Extra packages cost an extra $10 per month.
